drank L'Hiver (Winter Tea) by Fauchon
2220 tasting notes

The last wee bit of my sample from Cavocorax.

While this is a white tea, and a bai mu dan rather than a silver needle, if I saw this tea somewhere I’d buy it. There’s this delicate creamy lemon flavour (cream enhanced because I’m eating maple walnut ice cream for dinner), and I really quite like it. If I had a lot of this tea I could see it being great iced or cold brewed.

And while I’m thinking about lemon teas, I can hardly wait to make a Butiki order and get some of the Lemon Macaron tea. Butiki is (funnily enough) more accessible to me, and also it’s a white Indian tea, which tickles my fancy a lot more than bai mu dan. :)

Thanks, Cavo! This is definitely a tea style I need in my cupboard.
